Sommers joins forces with Laurindo Almeida (guitarist/arranger) in a move that predates Frank Sinatra's collaborative efforts with Antonio Carlos Jobim by several years. In actuality, the so-called "bossa nova" movement was one of the only trends to have any effect on the American pop scene during the mid-'60s - particularly when going up against British Invasion bands.

I have looked for the Joanie Sommers album "Softly, The Brazilian Sound" on CD for years. I was thrilled to be able to get this wonderful album at long last - but to have it include a bonus in the form of her "Positively The Most" album made it just that much better. What a wonderful singer, what a wonderful voice, what a wonderful treat for anyone who appreciates good music. All tracks are in bossa nova rhythm, with the participation of late brazilian guitar player Laurindo Almeida. Just one more question: why the strings background? If you like Stacey Kent, the best jazz singer today, listen to Joanie.
